EFFECT OF DIFFERENT SEED PRIMING TREATMENTS ON ACTIVITY AND ISOZYME PATTERN OF ANTIOXIDANT ENZYMES IN OKRA

Abstract


Effect of seed priming treatments and soaking durations on activity and isozyme pattern of antioxidant enzymes was studied. Four treatments:hydropriming, osmo-priming with 5% PEG, osmo-priming with 10% PEG and distilled water with soaking durations from 6 to 48 h at 6 h interval h were used. Dry okra seeds (unsoaked) seved as control. Priming increased the activity of antioxidant enzymes. Maximum increase was observed with T2. Seeds soaked for 24 h showed maximum activity Priming with T2 treatment for 24 h soaking gave the best results, followed by T1 and T3, while unsoaked control seeds proved to be the poorest.
